Two extraordinary Signature Series Ford GT’s will make their first appearance at Gordon McCall’s jet center party (Motorwork’s Revival) Wednesday, August 11, 2021. This is the first event of the 2021 Pebble Beach Automotive week in Monterey.

These two creative liveries are designed and built by Camilo Pardo and Rich Brooks (GTG).

A 2020 Ford GT in light blue is delivering a contemporary approach of the Ford GT that finished second in the 1966 Le Mans. This was the famous GT driven by Ken Miles and Denny Hulme. The story of Carrol Shelby and Ken Miles in last summer’s award winning motion picture “Ford vs Ferrari” features this amazing Ford GT. The new 2020 Ford GT is a great canvas for Camilo’s interpretation of this classic GT.

They have named this GT- 2020 Miles Ford GT.

Alongside the 2020 Miles is a 2019 in a glistening, gold paint. This livery is Camilo’s design evolution of the GT that finished third in the 1966 Le Mans. This entry was a Holman Moody Ford GT driven by Ronnie Bucknum and Dick Hutcherson. Featuring a state of the art gold paint, hot pink, and futuristic number 5, this GT is impossible to miss. This creative team has named their creation, Atomic Gold HM GT.

Camilo and Rich were in the original team that developed the 2005/6 Ford GT.

Rich was overseeing the builds and support of the development cars.

Camilo was the chief designer of the 2002 concept Ford GT and the 2005/6 production GT.

This creative team has produced 11 of these Signature Series Ford GT’s that are in the hands of collectors around the country.

The paint featured on these GT’s was created with great support from Axalta.

It was just a matter of time that the NFGT would become a canvas for Rich and Camilo in their signature series. Race heritage theme is awesome.. Great work and presentation guys. I'm sure the owners where very involved in the process.. Very Nice..Your guy set the standard very high.. Congratz.

Hopefully they will be Rally bound

Where did the cars come from? Are they customers' cars, or were they bought in the aftermarket and converted? Details--we need details!

Back when it was time to order my GT, I seriously contemplated a custom paint option to do exactly what Camilo and Rich have done with the Atomic Gold car. After struggling with a dizzying array of gold and bronze options (Axalta has one extensive catalogue) and trying to imagine the various outcomes, I received the opportunity to order the 2018 Heritage. Wow, what a relief! Chris Svensson, Garen, et.al. had made it an easy choice for me, with a color, stripe and content package that so resonated with me.

Congrats to Camilo and Rich for bringing this incredible (and difficult) livery to life. Well done guys, I really look forward to seeing it!!
